Globe and Mail: U of M stands out in annual report
The annual Canadian University Report produced by The Globe and Mail provides a snapshot of campuses across the country. The 2014 report focuses on the undergraduate education experience.
The University of Manitoba stands out due to its wide range of classes, extensive research opportunities, and substantial financial aid available. Since 2014, the U of M is tied with only two other universities for producing the most Rhodes Scholars.
Here is what the report had to say about the University of Manitoba:
Enormous U of M offers the typical perks of a large research university: it’s got a wide variety of classes and ample research opportunities. It also devotes a considerably larger chunk of its budget to financial aid than other universities in Manitoba. Downfalls include large class sizes and an impersonal suburban campus. U of M is tied with the University of Toronto and Mount Alison University for producing the most Rhodes Scholars (five) since 2010, a testament to the calibre of its students.
Hotshot prof: Kelley Beaverford collaborated with architecture students to build a primary school library in Ghana and a tea house in Turkey.
This year: U of M appointed Ry Moran to be the first director of the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, which will become the permanent home of the historical documentation collected by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission when it opens in 2015.
